You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes. - Look who's in January's issue in Runners world ? Life is pretty damn stink'n good! Wouldn't you agree TruMan ?

SAN BRUNO MOUNTAIN TRAIL RUNNING
I recently discovered a new location to do some trail running in the bay area. It is San Bruno Mountain State and County Park. The trails aren't very long, but by stringing some together one can put in some very nice distances with good climbs and fantastic views.
My favorite trails are the Summit Loop and the Ridge Trail. The Summit Loop goes from the park entrance up to the summit (creative name - uh?) at 1314 feet elevation.
It offers some fantastic views.
Here, a couple of Red Tail hawks study some ugly guy running by.
From there, one can then run out along the Ridge Trail which, as the equally creative name implies, runs along the ridge of the San Bruno mountains terminating at Oyster Point.
Here the Ridge Trail runs to the horizon with Mt. Diablo (elev. 3849) being faintly visible through the fog on the other side of the San Francisco bay.
Great views of the south bay, east bay and downtown San Francisco.
